Edgar?

By turning these genes off, we’ve already engineered chickens expressing teeth,

I can't see this ending well.

I'm thinking of the Mockingbird that took exception to my being around her nest last summer. She was aggressive enough in an "I'm going to fluff you to death!" way.
Give her teeth, maybe fangs, claws on those wing edges, and blow her up from an ounce or two to a few pounds and she'd have been a bird to contend with.
Tastes like chicken?
For the animal-lovers out there, she repeatedly "flaired" in front of my face and once flew right into my back. I left the area, not from fear of her but fear for her and her nest.

does it TASTE like chicken?

We're gonna need a bigger skillet for scrambled eggs.

(cue Jeff Goldblum voice)
"No, no - see - by, by doing this you are tampering with nature's balance. Uh-huh. These, these dino-chicks will require not just more feed, you see, but also larger feed -- Yes. You will have to also produce a mutant corn kernel which will, which will be biologically inviolable. Hmmm, ah yes, but the popcorn will be astounding, though ethically wrong, as well, uh-huh."

More reptile dysfunction.

But chickens already ARE dinosaurs.

I can already see the extinction of the phrase, "scarce as hen's teeth".

This science project ideas is unique however it requires more tests.
